Good friends and good food are a fabulous combination. We were really blessed to be able to make schedules work with our dear friend in Kansas City this weekend. We enjoyed good food and her excellent company.
Our friendship is unique. Years separate us to make me feel like a big sister. We share so much and at the same time have such a different background. She is a farm girl at heart and a city girl by upbringing. She has been turning into a great gardener and we love to share books, magazines, and great food!
Her gift to us (in addition to the great company) was this fabulous bread from Fevere. I was in love with the packaging from the start.
Fevere is, according to the bakery information, the Latin root word for "passion" and "fermentation." The baking method is described as using one heating and baking chamber with the baking happening after the heating, not at the same time.
The Olive Rosemary bread ingredients are organic wheat flour, organic levain, calamata olives, fresh rosemary, and sea salt. That is all - an ingredient list that short makes you feel like you know what you are eating.
The loaf is absolutely beautiful both on the outside and when sliced. I love artisan bread and this is wonderful dipped in a little olive oil with salt and pepper. Yum.
I am excited to check out the bakery in person. I understand it to have limited hours and high demand - when the bread is gone, it is gone.
We are planning to check out Fevere soon!
